Bears begin healing process

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Injuries certainly piled up in the opener at Green Bay, but the Bears made a step in the healing practice this afternoon.

They have just taken the practice field and nickel cornerback Danieal Manning (back) and defensive end Mark Anderson (toe) have returned to action in what is expected to be limited duty. That is a positive sign that they will be available Sunday against Pittsburgh. Manning took a shot from linebacker Lance Briggs at Green Bay when they were both closing in on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He slid to avoid the tacklers and Briggs went into Manning with full force.

Left guard Frank Omiyale (ankle) is also expected to be limited in practice, but he was on the field on Wednesday. Defensive tackle Tommie Harris (left knee) and strong safety Al Afalava (shoulder) were cleared for a full return after being limited Wednesday.

Still out: tight end Desmond Clark (cracked rib), cornerback Trumaine McBride (right knee) and strong-side linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa (right knee). Check back later on for the official injury report.

Omiyale needs to do better. He was getting thrown around down low. It was my understanding that size and strength was supposed to be what got him the job. Beekman is quicker and more of a finesse player.

If Omiyale is not able to at least hold his ground against defensive tackles, they need to go back to Beekman. He can at least get in the way and stay there.
